“My son Lee got this from Jim Sullivan a couple of years ago. Once he got it from Jim, he found the hardtop body and tub were very rusty and had been cut by previous owners many years before. So he began modifications on this Jeep. It still retains the stock DJ3A frame, (with serial number), 4 lug wheels, front and rear axles (4.56 rear end ratio), and steering column topped with a Willys station wagon wheel. It has a custom seat, teardrop taillights. It is titled as a 1957 DJ3A.

The body is a new CJ3A reproduction body with a 4 inch chopped windshield, new gauges, padded roll bar, 11 gallon aluminum gas tank in the rear of the body, new wheels, trim rings, baby moon hubcaps and wide white wall tires, the rear being “piecrust” slicks due to the design of the slots around the edge of the tires. Custom front bumper and bikini top. It has a 1979 Buick 231 V6 and automatic transmission, a custom shifter and new gauges. New master cylinder and wheel cylinders. New wiring from the dashboard back, but needs a front wiring harness and a set of headlight buckets(CJ2 , DJ3Aor 3A type). The Jeep needs to be finished, front wiring harness, headlights and headlight buckets, carburetor. The color is 2013 Dodge Challenger Copper Mango Tango.”

    Looks very nice Lee , Love the Pickup -Wagon steering wheel and horn button. Chopped windshield is cool too,as is the Whitewalls and rubber. Ive always been a big fan of a 2A windshield on anything as you get the shorter stance ,split and ability to fold it out but then again Ive always been partial to the 2As !!! Nice Jeep,Good luck on the sale ,looks fun to drive

    The alternator snugged up next to the distributor is a nice touch too. It makes for a very compact, tidy package, just like the jeep itself.

    As some of you may already know, Lee has been battling esophageal cancer for one year today. He is currently on home hospice care and we are keeping him comfortable(heavily medicated) during his last days. Our family needs to sell this Jeep, so if you know of someone who would give it a good home and finish it up, please let us know.

    Thanks, and Merry Christmas to all our Jeep fans! Thanks Dave for posting this again!

    Merry Christmas to your family as well Colin. Our best to Lee from us here. We’ll keep you in our thoughts and pass on Lee’s great Jeep to anyone we know that would be a good home.

    I wasn’t sure my first comments made it! Been a long night, we are staying at Lee’s every night while his wife works and he has some pretty rough nights. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.

    As some of you already know,our son Lee passed away on New Years Day. WE held his services a week ago, so now the need to sell this Jeep is more pertinent to help cover expenses. If you know of someone who would like to buy this custom DJ3A, please contact me at or at 602-810-1495 in Phoenix.

    Just a gorgeous/cool jeep and a very fair price. So sorry to hear about your son, Colin. I missed many posts the last couple months, including this one. Thoughts and prayers for your whole family ;-(.
